BeyondSMS

The Native SMS app is one my most modded parts of my phone. I’m always looking at ways to tweak and enhance it any way I can. Be it installing alternate SMS apps (biteSMS) or adding features and functionality to the native app.
I’ve added “Chat Pic,” “Ask to Send,” “Quick Dismiss.” “Quick Reply,” and of course I’ve used “biteSMS” and “tLert,” last three of which add the most sought after feature of SMS tweaks. Replying to SMS while keeping apps running in background. (I prefer Quick Reply.)

Beyond SMS does none of these things, but it does add a few really nice features and one really cool novelty.

BeyondSMS allows you to lock and/or hide textversations. Now what you decide to use this for is up to you. There are many reasons one might want to hide a conversation from someone, and if you can find one then BeyondSMS is just a click away.

The most useful feature of BeyondSMS is the “Lock SMS app” switch. This allows you to place a passcode which is required before launching your SMS app. It is compatible with Locktopus and even adds a little more security where Locktopus fails. If you search for an individual text in Spotlight you will be prompted by BeyondSMS for passcode, where Locktopus only locks the app itself.

BeyondSMS is configured in Settings and doesn’t require Respring after changing your settings.

After you have all BeyondSMS set up the way you like it you’re ready to use it. Open SMS app and you’ll see a new button option while editing texts.

BeyondSMS is not just a tweak for locking and hiding your SMS conversations It also gives some old school text a new school appearance. Text to Emoji.
Instead of switching that keyboard over to make that face. Just type :O . Youll be  after you see this next feature.

The most unique feature in BeyondSMS is definitely “Add Camera Background to SMS.” Great for watching tv and texting, texting while talking to someone, and of course now you can see that on coming car you are about to hit while replying to your girlfriends text that reads “Hi.”

The only “bug” I found was that if you have a textversation “Hidden” and you delete all other conversations you can not “show” hidden conversations until you receive another text from a different number. At that point your “Edit” button returns to top left corner and after tapping Edit your Hide button appears in top right. Also if you use the search bar at the top of SMS app you can find hidden text, which is good if you need to relocate a conversation but bad because it’s not “completely hidden,” But if someone is snooping around your phone that much they’re going to find what your trying to hide anyway.

Many times I have gone to send someone a picture, video or file via email only to realize for the hundredth time I can not perform this simple function in my native MobileMail app.
You have to send photos from Photos app.

Until now…

From H. Samara and N. Bassen the same peeps that brought us #PlayAwake and #AskToSend we now have #AnyAttach

Just open your Mail app and “Atach Any” photo/video or file.

A paperclip is added to your subject line. Similar to any other email attachment symbol you would see on a computer. Click on paperclip. And search desired file or photo.

If your familiar with iFile or even SSH then you should not have any problems navigating through the system of files. If you’re just trying to send photos then you definitely will not have any issues.

This is another very simple functionality addition to your device that you won’t notice you’ve been missing it until you have it.

AnyAttach is available in Cydia (BigBossRepo) for just $1.99. And I think it’s perfectly priced.

As always …

App Tag

So I came across a neat little tweak for your iDevice. It’s called #AppTag by @Onjai and it’s available in @macciti repo for FREE.
It’s a very simple tweak that doesn’t offer any functionality but it will give your device a little more character.
AppTag allows you to add a Custom Badge to any app.
Adding a badge is very easy.
To Use AppTag set icons into “Wiggle Mode” then Double Tap icon you wish to set badge for and you will get a pop-up prompting you to “Set New Badge”


To remove badge follow same steps then simply remove.

 

This simple tweak if updated could be pretty cool. And it does have one major issue, the badge is removed if the app has notifications attached to it. lets say you add “Text” to your SMS app, after receiving a SMS the badge will be removed and you’ll have to manually add the badge again. Also if you have a font installed it may not fit. So you’ll get this…

I would like to see more from this app. Changing the color of the badge or even the shape. perhaps in future updates but for now it’s worth every penny.
